:(

I usually don't post personal things here but I thought I'd vent a little about pain here…..^ ^ So today wasn't a very good day at work!…..(sigh) nothing like having a 90 lb. case of whole peeled tenderloin (aka filet mignon) dropped on your hand from a good height! 😦 And it's my right hand too (I'm right handed)……it even hurts to type right now and I can't even go to work now because I'd just end up being a burden to others asking for help all day long. 😦 I don't know if you watch football…I usually only watch Broncos games (our defense scares me! 😛 ) but when a quarterback hits his hand on a helmet on a forward pass and hurts his thumb…I wonder if he needs surgery….lol! I know that's really random! 😛 I'm kind of scared right now because the impact of a 90 lb box landing on your thumb when it's upright, bending it the wrong way in a way that it wasn't ever meant to be bent may be just as bad. We did an incident report but I'm hesitant about seeing a doctor for two reasons: I don't want to make an extra fuss about something that will heal itself and well be over dramatic. There's a lot of swelling right now and I can't pick anything up without feeling discomfort but could it just be a sprain? Or if something is torn will it heal itself in time with care or a splint? Hmmm…not good not good. You never realize how important your thumb is until you can't use it or it's probably just my ignorance……..I don't think I'll eat meat for awhile kind of upset with it right now!

    OMG!!! that's really not good..! uwah.. i hope it won't turn out anything serious..lately my left thumb really hurts too, but there's no specific reason. my mom reckons that my tendons are probably the reason.. my dad asks me to massage him and i probably exerted to much pressure..my left hand now tries to work without my thumb because it really hurts when i lift things.. good thing im right handed.. and that theres no swelling.. phew.. sorry for ranting about my thumb.. ^^;;ermm.. i think you should go see a doctor (i actually haven't gone to one and consult about my thumb yet.. ^^;;) because if ever its something more serious than it seems *knocks on wood* then it'll get worse ne.. but i do hope its not.. lets do this together ne! gambarimasu! 😀

    I feel sorry this happened to you. My best wishes go out to you in this time of pain. Where I work I deal with boxes, sometimes boxes fall on me and it can hurt, but my knee usually gets pain when I run into the end of the rollers or something and my leg or knee hits it. After a few min, i'll be fine.If you feel the need to see a doctor, please do so. Good luck getting better.

    Oh no! I'm sorry this happened to you. I think you should see a doctor. Maybe you need an x-ray or something, especially if you can't move it. They will take care of it properly. I hope it gets well soon!

    Oh mannn, thats horrible! You should definatly see a doctor, even though you don't want to draw attention to yourself. You could have dislocated your thumb, and if you just leave it, it could get much worse.
    But as long as your hand doesn't turn green, all is good ;D

  9. Thank you Sitiko, if it doesn't feel any better and it doesn't so far I will be getting an x-ray for sure. So true, it's my right hand and it sure makes life so much more difficult not being able to use it fully without hurting so much.

  10. Ah I hope your thumb gets better too Matsuzy. Wow you must massage really strongly! I can't even get massages…too ticklish. Once I was having stomach pain awhile ago and the doctor was pressing my stomach while I was laying down and I wanted to laugh and roll off the table the entire time! :PI'll get an x-ray next week and I'm fearing the results…

  11. Thank you Pettomomo. Watching Arashi tonight and that will make me (^__^)! If it feels the same, actually worse today, I'll be getting x-rays next week. I'm just so afraid of what they'll find wrong with it. I wish it were on my left hand…so difficult to do every day tasks.

  13. Thank you Momo. Ah that sounds awful that that happens to you at work…regularly? I hope you don't get hurt anymore. Looks like I'll be getting an x-ray next week to see how bad it is….I really really hope that it's not serious although it feels like it is.

  14. Thank you Willow. I'm hoping it's not broken because I can move it slightly but it really hurts whenever I try. If I use my other thumb for the space bar I can type though. 🙂 Thank you for the encouragement…getting an x-ray next week which I'm dreading though. I'm afraid to know what's wrong or what if they need to operate. 😦

  18. Thank you Chubeery. It's not feeling any better so I have x-rays next week to find out how bad it is…(dreading the results). I stayed home from work on Friday and I'm really going to feel partly useless on Monday if I return without being able to fully use my right hand for things. 😦

  19. OUCH! you broke your arm? And look at me crying over a thumb. I can't even imagine not being able to use my arm….I'm having a difficult time with just my right thumb. I'm happy that your work conditions are okay…just make sure to be careful! Not like me. I broke my collarbone when I was really little but I didn't even know what was wrong except that I couldn't raise my arms very high up….lol I still went out to play anyway….funny to think I was that way back then. ^ ^

  28. It turned out to be a fracture but if I keep it in a splint and are careful it should heal okay in time…..just hurts though right now. 😦 And trying to do things with my left hand is soooooo difficult. I feel so uncoordinated trying! 😛 I just returned to work today and was really careful so I think it'll be okay. Thank you! ^ ^
